Electricity is so expensive. It's become unaffordable. Please reduce the tariffs.

I have vacant land in Newlands. REF 0057398 In 2021 upto June 2022 I was charged 5.8966 c/r on a valuation of R360 000 = R 1768.98 per month or R21227.76 per annum.
Currently I am being charged 11.7932 c/r on a valuation of R470 000. =to R4324.17 rands per month or R51890.04 per annum .
These rates are ridicuosly high.
Please adjust.

Remove ANC mayor and all his crony 's. Replace with a competent workforce that that works for the Icommunity, that do not enrich themselves.

Water and electricity too high. I couldn't select both. Making it already difficult for normal households to survive

Rates are too high, as well as water electricity etc. There are no sports field for public use. My children have no grounds to go and train or play in. The grounds available are not for public use and we are charged subs t use it . Yet we are charged absorbent rates etc. no recreational places parks etc

There is no standard for charging prepaid water tariffs.
Some vendors are charging almost 2.5 times the price of standard Ethekwini tariffs
(R200 = 3.4kL).
2021/2022 tariff for water would show for 3.4kL of water
charged over a period of 30 days is ±R86.39 ext VAT.
I fully understand the different tariffs rates for the charging tiers for municipal water.
I have reverse engineered the calculations.
How are households that barely manage getting by each month supposed to manage these proposed increases?
Different vendors have different rates all around Ethekwini,
yet the municipal rates are the same for most areas .

Our once beautiful town has fallen to rack and ruin. Services are deplorable, there is little to NO maintenance work being done and they want us to pay MORE??
An increase in Rates for what? So they can hike up their salaries? We have to clean and maintain our own streets, and still pay salaries to people who do nothing!

Has the Municipality taken into account that more than half the country is currently unemployed , how does an unemployed person pay almost double the amount for rates when right now they are struggle to pay the normal amount ????? So the ploy is we get letters stating that the value of the property has been increased by the said Municipality , how is this done , no checks no visits , no valuations ect , and to almost double the original amount , common sense then will tell you that your rates are going to be doubled .
This is not acceptable , people have stolen millions ,billions , zillions and now the goverment wants to re-coup that monies from the poor people in the street .
Absolutely not acceptable , Mr Ethekwini Mayor .
